In Press: Re‐casting experience and risk along rocky coasts: A relational analysis using qualitative GIS

Just out is a research paper led by Pete Kamstra, examining the spatial and temporal variables of risk perception. Centering on the activities of rock fishers on the Eastern coast of Australia. Rock fishing as a recreational activity involves exposure to the combined risk of waves and slippery/uneven surfaces. The risk of wave breaking directly…

In Press: Last interglacial dunes in Victoria

This paper presents the first ever dated chronology for the series of dune fields and foredunes of the Gippsland Lakes area, Victoria. The authors used ground penetrating radar and luminescence dating to gain a picture of the coastal foredunes through time. A prograded coastal plain formed as a series of foredune ridges 125,00 years ago.…

In Press: Rocky Coast Hazard Index.

Just out in the journal Natural Hazards is the latest research into quantifying the dangers of rocky coasts. Here David Kennedy, Daniel Ierodiaconou, Adam Weir & Barbara Brighton have developed a method to calculate wave hazards on shore platforms. This index is a first in rocky coast hazard research. It utilises fundamental landscape characteristics such as platform elevation,…

In press: UAV monitoring of storm impact

In press is the latest research by David Kennedy, Dan Ierodiaconou and Alex Schimel on the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle’s to monitor coastal storm events. UAV’s were deployed before and after a storm event. Onshore erosion and offshore deposition of sand can be easily identified using the UAV. This technology is definitely a leap forward in understanding and…
